your my hero.


its like all those shows, you got all the ingredients:

the di#@ who is supposedly in charge
the second in command whos the annoying guy
the lackey who actually does all the work, but takes all the abuse.

same old same old.
id rather not turn on the box, and just go build something.

"usraptr" = United States raptor - bird of prey = United States Bald Eagle.  FYI, somebody else thought of it first so I had to drop the "O" in raptor.

 A friend of mine emailed them today.  Here's the reply he got.

Hi Bob,


I'm working on placing it on a network as we speak. Discovery was our target but they passed for some reason. So to date we are not in a contract. We are pitching to quite a few other networks and heaven willing we'll get on soon.


Follow us on our facebook page and tell your friends to become fans as well, I think this will help our goal.


Thank you so much fellow Mopar lover! I just finished a Yellow T/A. Pretty rusty old girl but still worth bringing back. You can see the photo of it on our facebook or myspace page.


Have a great Sunday,


Mark

I've heard about the buried car before.
I just never hung around long enough to see pics.

MMC is one of the car clubs here. They are big, and I am doing a display for them.
I don't think They are directly connected to this "show".
Seems interesting, granted the same old formula. (why?)
we have some local shops that are full of ninjas. They work with other ninjas, and they don't disrespect each other on a daily basis. They do clown around, but I guess that doesn't make good TV.

Seriously, 50K.  that's crazy!

I look for cars in that shape.  Sucks to have someone out there
paying 50K for a piece of scrap with numbers when I am trying to
purchase crap like that for my poor end of the addiction.
Now every joe shmo will think their rusted junk in the back yard is
worth ridiculous amounts.  Well, more than they already do anyway.  :hyper:

Looks like a cool concept, I just wish they would leave all the "drama" on the editing room floor. It annoys me will all the "deadlines", bickering among the workers etc..

I must agree.  All the shows have that flavor. 

I do like how the guy trys to save absolutely every part on
the car.  Something to be said if he can save that
quarter he is pulling out on the link. Roof also for that matter.
